Police Scotland Warn Of More Travel Disruption On The Regions Roads

From 7:00 a.m. this morning, the Met Office have upgraded their weather warning from yellow to amber in a number of areas in Scotland including eastern and northern parts of Dumfries and Galloway.

In line with this, Police Scotland has increased the stage of the travel advice from stage 2 to stage 3.

Superintendent Louise Blakelock, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing said:”Due to the upgraded warning from the Met Office it has been necessary to update our travel advice.
“We’ve been working closely with our colleagues at Transport Scotland, the Met Office and local councils to assess the conditions. Therfore for the duration of this updated warning, there is a high risk of disruption for road journeys and there is a high likelihood of the conditions for travel being very poor.
“Those heading out on the roads should be aware of these risks – ensure you have a fully charged phone, warm clothing, and leave extra time for your journey.
“Drive to the road conditions and make sure you check the most up to date information from Traffic Scotland and the Met Office before heading out. Our priority is to ensure the public are safe.”
